Freeze Dried Camping Food

15 posts in this topic

Been pouring through the Mountain House ingredients and it doesn't look good for gluten-free camping. Anyone know of a freeze dried dinner and breakfast pack company? My husband is taking my diagnosed daughter on their third annual rafting trip in the ANWR preserve in Alaska and room is of the essense. I can pack gluten-free for the trips we take, but for my husband it needs to be open the bag and pour in the water. That's all he can handle.

Thanks ;)

Funny you should mention this as I was just checking into this yesterday. Although I don't need it for camping, I want it for when I travel and don't have access to anything but catered meals.

I found a company called AlpineAire. Check out this list of gluten-free products! They provide a special gluten free list!

Looks like you can order them from the web and they also have some of them at REI.

Thai kitchen has instant rice noodles that are super easy to make, just place them and the seasoning in boiling water, let it sit for a while and voila!

These ones should work well if you have pots:

I like Thai Ginger and Spring Onion

These ones should work well if you don't have pots:

I like Thai Ginger, Spring Onion and Pad Thai

*don't get Hot and Sour Rice Noodle Soup Bowl NOT gluten-free

Here is their gluten-free list from their website:

QUESTION:

Which products are wheat/gluten free?

Most of Thai Kitchen products are wheat/gluten free. The exceptions are Hot and Sour Rice Noodle Soup Bowl, Peanut Sauce Mix, Peanut Bake, Savory Garlic Stir-fry Rice Noodles (5.3oz), and the Lemongrass and Chili Rice Noodle Soup (5.3oz box), Toasted Sesame Stir-Fry (New) and Curry Stir Fry (New).

RGH! I wish I had seen this 2 days ago. My dad is Outdoors Man (insert image of him on a moutain top with billowing cape) and he just left for a 10 day backpack trip with gluten-free food.

I wish I could ask him what brand he got, but I do know that he does almost all of his shopping (I wish I was kidding, even his every day clothes) at REI. Check out some of the brands that they carry and maybe you'll have some luck.

If it's not too late I can ask him when he gets back.

I'm not sure if these are avalable outide NZ but, we have a small range of packet meals for campers and the like. They are not freeze dried or anything like that but the range includes Chili Con Carne, Morrocan lamb and Butter Chicken. They are just heat n eat and quite tasty.

Not all is freeze dried but here's my travel foods. Foods I packed and was glad to have them from home: Jay Robb's Egg White Protien powder mix vanilla flavor (Wild Oats Market), individual packets of mashed potatoes (Costco)...This was a huge help on the the many plane rides!, Gerber Graduates Mini Fruits freezed dried banana and strawberry, Aunt Candice P&B Choc chip bars(New Seasons Market), Ener G WF Pretzels, Almond butter, Nana's Banana gluten-free bar cookies, Pamela's Biscotti, Trader Joe's dried bananas, Cliff Nectar dark choc & walnut bar, Tillamook Country Smoker Old fashion Steak Nuggets, plain rice crackers and lots of preserved ginger for my tummy. I did OK most of the trip but near the end when the imodium couldn't keep up I was glad to have also packed Oral rehydration salts and some Cera Lyte 70 Rice Based Oral Elecrtolyte powder.

You can also make up your own freeze-dried dinners/boil in a bag. You can pour boiling water into the really heavy duty zip-lock freezer bags (try if first at home :P ). A couple of ideas for instant meals - potato flakes, dried ham, dried red pepper + spices, instant rice, mixed dried veggies, dried beef+ dried black beans + dried beef. The dried veggies, beef etc. can be bought at healthfood stores, coops, online or you can even rent a food drier to make it yourself. A lot of meals you make at home can just be put in a food drier. Just make sure they don't have much fat in them or they go rancid.

Enertia trail foods has great freeze-dried stuff -- some of which is gluten free -- I really like the the El Capitan 3 bean chili.

You guys are awesome! I was thinking about backpacking with the kids this summer, but was a little intimidated at the challenge of finding packable gluten-free foods. This thread answered my question before I even asked it!

Another product we found is Jerky Direct's organic jerky (online). The "regular" products aren't gluten-free, but the organic ones are. And they don't have MSG, nitrites, etc, either. My kids liked it better than store brands, though not as much as homemade.

These are great suggestions, this is stuff I like to know. I find out stuff on this forum I never even thought of asking. If we're discussing camping, don't forget the great suggestion someone made on this forum earlier for s'mores-one marshmallow between two gluten-free chocolate chip cookies-yum!

I second Alpine Aire, I've tried it and it's decent plus they have "gluten free" right on the package. (This is the kind that my dad was buying, at REI).

Thought I'd add I was at the store today actually safeway and the same ORGANIC jerky sold there is made by the same makers of jerkydirect in my previous post, just different packageing and for $7.99 yikes we where in denver 2 weeks ago and were shopping at whole foods which is awesome. And again same ORGANIC jerky for 7.99 just different packageing again. what a rip-off.

So like I said you can join JD for 12$ a month for the same ORGANIC jerky DLVD to your home then you can buy the same ORGANIC jerky for 3.22 first month then 3.42 a bag case price 24 and I might add our children LOVE this jerky. I'm a SAHD since NOV 05 our kids are 4 and 3 we moved from Minneapolis to Farmington, NM yikes for wife to start her career. Thanks for the Read Bob again link http://lenning.jerkydirect.com

Hi, All-

Any news here? Any new products found? That Alpine Aire site was truly helpful.

Does anyone have experience (recipes) for deyhdrating your own stuff? I have a dehydrator that I've only used successfully for jerky so far (the veggies have had mixed results).

Can a person actually freeze dry their own stuff? That'd be awesome - freeze dried fruits are yummy.

Thanks for all the intel!

Julie

I've dehydrated lots of things - mostly fruit and crackers and jerky and veggies.

Freeze drying stuff takes significant equipment that most of us wouldn't want to try to pay for, unfortunately, or I'd be ALL OVER that! :P

    • Should I get tested for Celiac Disease?
      I'm glad you got the biopsy done & have a definitive answer! Welcome to the club you never wanted to be a member of but you will persevere & and flourish. 
    • Newbie: mother to coeliac kids
      You surely have a special family there. Hooray for your eldest son making sure his brother is safe. That's a huge reflection on the way you raised him mom. Good job! Your poor boy is probably going to feel icky for a while with that kind of damage. Also, for the first 6 mos. - a year, we can have ups & downs like being on a roller coaster. Some great days & then BOOM, you have a totally crappy day or 2 or 3. Well cooked everything for him. Mushy veggies, mushy cooked fruits, go very easy or not at all on spices for a while, keep up the bone broth, crock pot stews and soups. You're doing a great job Midwitch, it takes a while to get all the rules down and by that I mean besides the gluten free rules -- the tailored to the individual rules and they will change as he heals so you'll be adapting all along the way.  Once everyone is tested it might be easiest to take the household gluten free and the kids who can eat gluten can do so outside of the home. It sure does make things easier especially with your large crew and you a working single mom.
    • Villous atrophy with negative tTG IgG/IgA, high Gliadin IgA!
      Clearly the doctors need to establish what is causing Villous atrophy.  My villious atrophy was caused by parasites. This also temporarily raised my Gliadin antibody IgA levels but normalised after treatment.   A celiac gene test might be helpful in ruling out Celiac.  
    • Sjogren's, Celiac, or both?
      Yes, you absolutely need to be tested for Celiac!  Sjogren's seems to be another close friend to Celiac, unfortunately, and if your SSA was positive, then you have Sjogren's. I have both diseases and found myself that my Sjogren's symptoms calmed down once I had been gluten-free for awhile.  I still have moderate symptoms but they were almost unbearable pre-Celiac diagnosis.  The fact that your symptoms greatly improved on the gluten-free diet speaks volumes and should be looked into. I am terribly sorry about your miscarriage. That has got to be so tough to deal with. Miscarriage is another problem that can occur with Celiac because of the vitamin deficiencies and other reasons.  It is very important for you to rule Celiac either in or out if you want to try and have children. Good luck and if you have any questions, feel free to ask away!
    • Blue Bell Ice Cream Recalls Mispackaged Rocky Road Pints
      Blue Bell Ice Cream Recalls Mispackaged Rocky Road Pints That Contain Cookies 'N Cream Ice Cream; Potential Allergy Concerns For Those With Wheat and Soy Allergies. Blue Bell Ice Cream is voluntarily recalling select lots of Rocky Road pints produced in its Brenham, Texas, plant because they may be mispackaged and actually contain Cookies 'n Cream Ice Cream. That ice cream contains the undeclared allergens soy and wheat, which may present a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction risk to people who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to soy or wheat. The pints can be identified as a Rocky Road pint with a Cookies 'n Cream lid, and contain Cookies 'n Cream Ice Cream.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
